Russian Tuberculosis Clinics Get Minilabs to Prevent Fake Medicines

May 24 2010 - 11:47

Three tuberculosis clinics in Russia have been equipped with GPHF-Minilabs, mobile mini-laboratories supplied by the Global Pharma Health Fund (GPHF), to protect patients from being treated with counterfeit medicines, the proliferation of which is a burning problem in Russia.

These small laboratories can quickly verify drug quality and detect counterfeit medicines, making it possible for doctors at clinics in Moscow, Russia’s capital, and the cities of Vladimir and Orel in the western part of the country, to get rid of counterfeit pharmaceuticals that could increase the spread of drug-resistant strains of tuberculosis.
